Panagia Hozoviotissa was one of the main sights on our "list" for Amorgos and it did not disappoint. It's a marvel of engineering with an interesting backstory.

Quite an incredible sight when you turn the corner and there it is built into the cliff. Been a couple of times here in Amorgos and always come here for a visit. Actually last visited a few years ago not October 2016 as stated.
